11:00 <yoyo[RKN]> is there an option to limit sftp upload transfer rate?

11:00 <hawmps> dunno..

11:00 <miha> if you know the port, that's job for router :D

11:08 *** Aeternus has quit IRC

11:31 <PovAddict> yoyo[RKN]: there's a tool called "trickle" that can limit the network bandwidth of any other program

11:32 <PovAddict> so you can say: trickle -u 30 scp test.dat whatever.com:/whatever/test.dat

11:32 <PovAddict> and it will run "scp test.dat whatever.com:/whatever/test.dat" limiting its upload speed to 30k

11:36 <yoyo[RKN]> problem is, that on the old server the upload with ftp was very fast. Now on the new one with sftp it is 3 times slower

15:02 <miha> i think best description of opensource can be found at http://james.hamsterrepublic.com/technomancy/  Open Sourcery Open Sourcery is the new magical approach to software design that is replacing the old machine-minded methods. Basically, it works like this; Someone sets up a CVS repository and a bug tracking system, and a mailing list, and most importantly a website to state the goals and status of the project. Then as many Open Sourcerers as possible start arguing ab

15:04 <XioNYC> The Community is more like a bunch of volunteer firefighters - esp. when you think of bug patching.  Someone raises the alarm, a flock of people drop what they're doing and go off to quench the fire.

15:13 <hawmps> there will be...

15:13 <hawmps> and more, depending on where you are..

15:18 <XioNYC> At the tippy top of Manhattan?  I /so/ hope so.

15:19 <XioNYC> I don't care if I have to schlepp to Dyckman/Riverside Park, but there'd better be enough snow to build an igloo.

18:18 <claw> using an Gefore 240m

18:19 <claw> its in the list of card that support cuda

18:19 <claw> whats wrong?

18:19 <xcamel> wrong firmware in the card

18:19 <claw> so update to the right driver?

18:20 <xcamel> compute capability > 1.2 or something like that

18:20 *** miha has quit IRC

18:22 <claw> well sry xcamel for disturbing you but im new to nvidia and not realy getting it

18:23 <claw> im using the current driver

18:23 <claw> what shall i do?

18:24 *** Piaggo has quit IRC

18:25 <xcamel> see if you can upgrade the firmware on the GTX240

18:26 <xcamel> if you can, it'll be on the nvidia website.

18:27 <xcamel> hmmm.. 240m lappity-toppity

18:27 *** quail has joined #boinc

18:28 <xcamel> what OS you running, claw?

18:29 <claw> Win7 64bit

18:30 *** Piaggo has joined #boinc

18:30 <xcamel> nvidia driver?

18:31 <claw>

18:31 <claw> 195.62

18:31 <xcamel> ok.. still looking..

18:32 <xcamel> what brand of laptop?

18:32 <claw> acer

18:33 <claw> well nvidia product page says there full cuda support for that series of gpu

18:33 <claw> even the mobile ones

18:37 <xcamel> did you check the milkyway site to see if it's supported?

18:37 <claw> there are only examples

18:37 <claw> but it seams like it is not

18:37 <claw> i already did a post there

18:38 <claw> "Milkyway@Home requires a GPU supporting Double Precision arithmetic."

18:38 <claw> " Your NVIDIA GPU lacks the needed compute capability"

18:41 <xcamel> Microsoft Windows (98 or later) running on an Intel x86-compatible CPU0.24 (cuda23)7 Dec 2009 4:59:07 UTC

18:41 <xcamel> so guess not.

19:45 <CoderForLife> er, sorry  "Moo"

19:45 <CoderForLife> I didn't put the emphasis on the right syllable

19:45 <efc> I have udder contempt for poor punctuation.

19:46 <CoderForLife> it's as offensive as code versus Code

19:46 <CoderForLife> and other four-letter words

19:47 <xcamel> 'lo

19:48 <CoderForLife> hello Jay

19:48 <xcamel> got two whole inches of snow..

19:48 <xcamel> big woop.

19:48 <CoderForLife> Snowpocalypse missing you?

19:48 <xcamel> seems so..

19:49 <CoderForLife> I can't say I feel for DC

19:49 <xcamel> http://www.gemacs.com/tmp/Snowman.jpg

19:49 <CoderForLife> heh

19:49 <efc> With any luck, DC will never be seen again

19:50 <efc> Sort of an El Dorado but with nothing good in it

19:50 <CoderForLife> I passed a 12ft snowman on the way home today.  I have no idea how they lifted the top pieces.

19:50 <xcamel> magic

19:50 <efc> They probably just started with a 12 foot snowfall and carved around him.

19:50 <CoderForLife> that's a thought

19:51 <CoderForLife> I thought maybe they had made contact with the same Ancient Astronauts that helped levitate blocks for the pyamids

19:52 <CoderForLife> it could happen

19:52 <xcamel> Hooters chain seeks buyer; could fetch $250M

19:52 <xcamel> Hooters has recently shopped itself to a number of private-equity firms as sales have sagged with the recession

19:53 <CoderForLife> got Nagios running on the local network - reporting on the status of 23 machines so far

19:53 <xcamel> Should we move that to the "Breast Buy" stocks column?

19:53 <CoderForLife> sure - under subcategory breasturants

19:54 <efc> Breast Buy. Thats a Groiner.

19:54 <xcamel> oh.. also..

19:55 <CoderForLife> I was wondering where that might be

19:56 <xcamel> even rush used my joke this afternoon...

19:56 <CoderForLife> looks like it runs right under Fermilab - wait till LHC comes up to half power

19:57 <xcamel> Il is already a 'black hole'
